Annual Blues Magic in Helena by Sondra Goode

Greetings and good day to you all. If you think for a second that we are going to harp about our elected leaders and all the national creepshow going on in Washington, think again. Overall, the above statement pretty much sums up our feelings on the subject. Consider this, though: the above-mentioned ‘class’ can vote itself unlimited pay raises. What other normal humans can say that? For a time we felt like we should round up everyone connected to Congress and drop them in the ocean. But then we realized that the oceans are polluted enough and it wouldn’t be fair to the fishes…

In General…

As the leaves turn red, brown and yellow and let the trees change clothes for yet another year, we are headed into what isby far the nicest time of weather here in the Altered State. We don’t know if it’s really that nice, mind you, or that much of an annual relief from the dreads of our Summers. It is Autumn in Arkansas, people, and the final music festivals of the year are taking place. It’s really pretty wondrous the musical riches we have in these parts: -King Biscuit Blues in Helena, Harvest Fest at Mulberry Mountain and the Original Ozark Folk Festival in Eureka Springs. Each, of course, is quite unique, and low and behold, this year each is happening on different weekends to boot. Which is great news for us, as we consider each a must-attend event; -Harvest Fest at Mulberry Mountain, a 3-day musical campout with several dozen fine acts to appear; -The Original Ozark Folk Fest in Eureka Springs, with dozens of musicians, bands and artsy-craftsyness in the coolest and most off-thewall town in America. See all about these shows elsewhere in this issue…….

In Particular…….

Bikes, Blues & Barbecue 2013 was a gas, with tens of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts filling the Ozarks. They came for the bikes, the food, and the music…but especially the camaraderie involved: the sheer synergy that such a large crowd of like-minded folks have. And when you have, say, 200,000 or so fans of anything gathered in one place it’s powerful. Especially if, as in this case, it’s a couple hundred thousand folks partying who have the means (read, bucks) to do whatever they want. We’re certainly not talking about biker gang types. Not at all. What we’re referring to, of course, is a crowd

of professional types: engineers, doctors, lawyers, surgeons and all with really expensive toys who dream of chucking it all for the freedom of the open road ut si…(Latin for ‘as if’). One of the least expected comments I’ve been hearing from the club owners, is how surprised they were that the bars, et al, were clearing out by 11 or so. Fact is, many of these ‘bikers’ are, essentially, retired. They don’t party all night whatsoever. Rather, they turn in early so they can be out there by daylight driving the wonderfully banked twists and turns of Ozark mountain highways, not to mention showing off their investments. (Some of these motorcycles are worth several hundred thousand dollars.) Plus, considering that quite a few are trucked to Fayetteville and pampered like a member of the family or more - rather than actually driven there - these folks don’t get a chance to really ride much other than at events such as these. The actual final figures of BB & BBQ are nowhere near tabulated, but overall the event was a real success in many ways. See Joe Giles’ piece on the following page… The Legends of Arkansas concert in LR was a success, and the good folks behind it tell us that they have already started working on next year’s LOA celebration. Some 14 or so acts performed for the daylong event, with a very cool after-party taking place at the legendary Midtown Billiards. Kudos to all involved…

In Closing…….

Thanks to all of you who extended congratulations on the birth of our grand-baby. We simply could not help ourselves for our extreme pride. When it comes down to it, creating noosepapers, songs, albums, festivals and all, simply doesn’t hold a candle to creating an actual person. This must be the greatest creative project a person can undertake. Here at presstime, we’re happy to report that little Maddie (and mom and dad, too) are all doing just fine…thangu very much… Well folks, it’s time to close this chapter and get these pages off to the - gasp - printer. By now they are most likely pacing the print-room floor and making the kinds of comments we can’t print in a family noosepaper. We hope to see all of you at all of these incredible Altered State festivals. And if we don’t, rest assured that we’ll be there for you and let you know what you missed…it’s the least we can do… Keep ‘em flyin’…….

What a Party

Bikes, Blues & BBQ 2013

---Joe Giles Bikes Blues and BBQ is in the books for another year and for the 14th consecutive year, it qualifies as a success by all accounts. All of northwest Arkansas was filled with visitors from all over the U.S, and a lot of visitors from overseas. The bars, restaurants, and hotels were full, as were the gas stations, grocery stores, and all the other businesses that benefit from this type of event. Ok, after we’ve paid homage to the economic impact of such a gathering, let’s get to the real stuff. The music was superb with a lot of bands brand new to the BBB Main Stage. Big James and the Chicago Playboys, the incomparable Samantha Fish, Erica Blinn and the Handsome Machine, and to close the Friday night show, the Memphis Wildman Jason D. Williams. Williams is a true treasure, and someone that every music aficionado owes it to himself or herself to see in person; the show simple can’t be described. Attractions beyond music? Better than ever! The United FMX motorcycle stunts team was astounding with its “big air” show, and for those more interested in ground-bound stunts, “Wheelies for Jesus”, a faith based stunt team, provided wheelies, stoppies, and a variety of physically impossible tricks that kept the crowd “oooing” and “aahhing” for their entire performance. And those folks lucky enough to score a ride in “FiFi”, the world’s only remaining flying B29 Superfortress bomber from WWII had the experience of a lifetime. FiFi and the entire Commemorative Air Force were on display at the first annual Bikes Blues and Bombers Air Show, which will surely become a recurring event at the rally. More? The Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys Miss BBB Contest, the lawn mower pulls, the Stokes Air Battle of the Bikes Show, the BBB Karaoke contest, the Arkansas State KCBS BBQ Championship, the Progressive Insurance Blues Train shuttle, the Second Annual BBB Car Show………well, the list just goes on. And exactly two days after the rally was over (and eight hours after clean-up was completed) the staff and volunteers started planning for next year’s event. 2014 will mark the 15th anniversary of the midwest’s largest motorcycle rally (nationally, heck, we don’t know our rank, but motorcycle industry insiders tell us that we are somewhere in the top four). Next year then? We’re bringing back the most well-received musical acts that we’ve had over the years as a sort of musical homecoming; every night will be a “don’t miss” event in itself. More attractions, more unique vendor offerings, and just more fun,…….if that’s possible. You’re not going to want to miss BBB 2014, Sept. 24-27. But, be advised. You need to make reservations now because the hotels and motels are already getting booked. ---JG

Ozark Folks Come Out In Droves

The 66th Annual Original Ozark Folk Festival

Michael Johnathon, Michael Martin Murphey, Leroy Troy & Tennessee Mafia, The Clark Family Trio, Clancy Ferguson, The Ozark Alliance, Mountain Sprout, David Kimbrough III, Fiddlin' Banjo Billy Matthews, Martin Johnson & Brick Fields America’s Longest Running Annual Folk Festival The 66th Annual Original Ozark Folk Festival ---Charles Ragsdell The Original Ozark Folk Festival, one of the oldest in America, has been held every year since 1948, making it the longest consecutively held annual folk festival in America. The festival features the music, dance, arts, crafts and people of the Ozarks. The 66th Annual Original Ozark Folk Festival will be held from October 23 - 27 in historic Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The festival will feature the Barefoot Ball, the Queen’s Contest, the HedgeHoppers, arts & crafts exhibitions and free music in Basin Spring Park throughout the weekend. As the main show, the festival will host the internationally acclaimed WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour in The Auditorium. WoodSongs will be taping two shows for airing to listeners and viewers on radio stations around the world (including KUAF in Fayetteville, Arkansas), the American Forces Radio Network, Blue Highways TV Network and Public TV stations nationwide. WoodSongs is produced by an all-volunteer crew that has recorded over 700 shows since WoodSongs began in 1999. WoodSongs has over 500 radio affiliates, and is carried on Armed Forces Radio Network. They have over 2 million listeners each week. The TV show is carried on the Public Broadcasting System, and each show is played twice. The entire WoodSongs archive is played regularly on Blue Highways TV Network. The total reach is over 71 million homes. Some of the artists who have appeared on WoodSongs include Peter Yarrow, Ralph Stanley, Richie Havens, John Hammond, Jr., Emmy Lou Harris, Sam Bush, Hot Tuna, Blind Boys of Alabama, Iris Dement, Joan Osborne and Judy Collins, as well as hundreds of relatively unknown acts that got international exposure to millions of listeners and viewers. Host Michael Johnathon is a folksinger, songwriter, concert performer, playwright and author. Johnathon grew up in upstate New York along the shores of the Hudson River. At 19 years old, he moved to the Mexican border town of Laredo, Texas and found a job working as the late night DJ on a small radio station. One night, he played ‘Turn, Turn, Turn’ by the 60’s folk rock group The Byrds. As the song played, he recalled seeing the song’s writer, his neighbor Pete Seeger, performing in his Dutchess County hometown in New York. By the time the song had ended, he decided to pursue a career as a folksinger. Two months later, he bought a guitar and a banjo and settled into the isolated mountain hamlet of Mousie, Kentucky. For the next three years, he traveled up and down the hollers of the Appalachian Mountains knocking on doors and learning the music of the mountain people. Michael experienced hundreds of front

Michael Johnathon & WoodSongs porch hootenannies where folks would pull out their banjos and fiddles, sit on their front porches with him and play the old songs that their grandparents taught them. Soon enough, he began performing concerts at hundreds of colleges, schools and fairs, and touring with established artists including Judy Collins. He performed two thousand Earth Concerts, plus benefits

Michael Martin Murphey for the homeless, farm families, and shelters helping battered women and children. In all, he sang to over two million people in one four-year stretch. Billboard Magazine headlined him as an “UnSung Hero.” He has been featured on CNN, TNN, CMT, AP, Headline News, NPR, Bravo and the BBC. One of WoodSong’s special guests will be Michael Martin Murphey, who is best known for his hits ‘Wildfire’ and ‘Carolina in the Pines’. Murphey has six gold albums, including Cowboy Songs, the first album of cowboy music to achieve gold status since Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs by Marty Robbins in 1959. Mur-

phey is also the author of New Mexico’s state ballad, “The Land of Enchantment”. Murphey grew up in Dallas, Texas, where he developed a special love for cowboy songs and stories. As a youth, he enjoyed writing poetry and loved listening to his uncle’s old 78 rpm records—particularly the music of country and folk artists such as Hank Williams, Bob Wills, and Woody Guthrie. In junior high school, he began performing as an amateur, and later as a camp counselor at a summer camp called “Sky Ranch”. At the age of seventeen, he took his first “professional” music job, playing western songs around a campfire at a Texas ranch. By the early 1960s, Murphey was playing the clubs in Dallas, performing country music, folk music, and rock music. He won over the conservative Texas audiences with his charm and talent, and soon formed a band that developed a significant following in the Dallas area. Murphey’s first big break came through his friend Michael Nesmith, who had become part of the popular television musical group, The Monkees. Nesmith asked Murphey to write them a song for the next Monkees album, and Murphey composed “What Am I Doing Hangin’ Round.” The album Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. sold over five million copies.

Clark Family Trio Murphey went on to write hits such as “Geronimo’s Cadillac”, “Carolina in the Pines” and his masterpiece “Wildfire”. His 1990 release “Cowboy Songs” was the first western music gold album since Marty Robbin’s 1980 album “Number 1 Cowboy.” Murphey went on to record a series of “Cowboy Songs” albums that reinvigorated the Western music genre. Murphey has multiple Grammy nominations and six gold records. His songs have been recorded by Kenny Rogers, John Denver, Cher, Lyle Lovett, Flatt and Scruggs, Hoyt Axton, Roger Miller, Bobbie Gentry, Michael Nesmith, and the Mon-

kees. Also to be featured will be Leroy Troy and the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band. Leroy Troy and the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band is a six-piece band that has graced the stage of the Grand Old Opry over a dozen times, and have played all around the world. Leroy was in the cast of the long-running television show Hee Haw, and it shows with their humorous music and corny jokes. Also in the group are “Lonesome” Lester Armistead, David “Ferg” Ferguson, Dan Kelly, and Mike Armistead. Their music has been featured in movies and television shows, but their most infamous performance was playing at Billy Bob Thorton and Angelina Jolie’s wedding!

DAVID KIMBROUGH III is a genuine bluesman living in Northwest Arkansas. He began his career singing alongside his father the great “Junior” Kimbrough. David has recently added the mountain dulcimer to his presentation of original, Delta, North Mississippi Hill Country and Cotton Patch Blues.

FIDDLIN’ BANJO BILLY MATHEWS has been playing music for over forty years in the Old Time genre. Still residing in the Ozark Mountains, he is known far and wide across this land for his musical skill and old time fiddling ability.

In addition to these international stars, the Ozark’s own stars will also shine. Some of the many acts include: THE CLARK FAMILY TRIO is from Searcy, Arkansas. They perform modern Bluegrass, Americana and Gospel

David Kimbrough, III

Clancey Ferguson favorites featuring tight, three-part “family” harmonies along with finger-style and flat picked acoustic guitar. Nine-year-old Sally Ann Clark and her big sister, 15year old Sophie, have grown up singing with their Mom, Cindy, who also plays upright bass for the group. They are joined by Little Rock super-picker Bill Nesbitt on acoustic guitar. CLANCEY FERGUSON has been hailed as “Princess of Bluegrass”. This 15 year old fiddler from Mountain View, Arkansas is the 2012 Arkansas State Junior Fiddle Champion and the 2013 Arkansas Junior Contemporary Fiddle Champion. Despite her tender age, Clancey has amassed and impressive list of appearances including playing on stage with Rhonda Vincent on numerous

Brick Fields occasions and interviewed by Chelsea Clinton for NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams THE OZARK ALLIANCE is a family band from Salem, Missouri, (home of The Dillards). Alex, Jenny, Allison, Robin, & Dennis Vaughn have been playing together as a band since 2002 – with the exception of Allison, who was only born in 2004. The band specializes in traditional and modern bluegrass and bluegrass-gospel music performed around a single mic. In fact, they won 1st place in the National Single Mic Championship at Silver Dollar City in 2008. MOUNTAIN SPROUT is a highly energetic hillbilly music machine, spitting original tunes and blowing minds with witty lyrics and face melting musicianship. Hailing from Eureka Springs, Arkansas, four incredible musicians work seamlessly to bring forward the kind of bass thumping, banjo picking, guitar playing, fiddle shredding, that makes you get and stomp your feet.

Fiddlin' Banjo Billy Matthews MARTIN JOHNSON is a native Arkansan and masterful young acoustic guitarist. At times classical, his fretwork drifts fluidly into finger-picking and on into what Martin affectionately refers to as his own “slaphit” technique, where he uses his fingers to slap the fretboard to create syncopated rhythms and harmonic tones to accompany the more traditional elements of his playing style. Finally, Brick Fields will perform at a Gospel Brunch in Basin Spring Park at noon on Sunday to close down the festival. Rachel Fields-Brick and Larry Brick are Arkansas natives that come together with their natural approach Original Arkansas Blues and Folk music. This multi-award winning musical couple are definitive blues artists, although their repertoire includes originals written by both and of various genres including Gospel,

Ballads, Folk, R&B and well tested standards. Just like good old fashion medicine, we all need a taste of this invigorating music. The Nashville Blues Society has called Brick Fields Music an “Unleashed cleansing of the soul!” and New Music Of Tomorrow says, “Brick Fields is by far the most soulful artist I have heard in years!”

History of the 66th Annual Original Ozark Folk Festival The Original Ozark Folk Festival is America’s longest continuously running folk festival! There were only a handful of folk festivals that are older, as they held their first festival before our festival’s 66 year run started. We are proud that for 66 years straight, year after

The Ozark Alliance year, our small city has produced a world-class folk festival here in historic Eureka Springs, Arkansas. According to “A History Of Folk Music Festivals in the United States” by Ronald D. Cohen, the first “Folk Festival and Homelands Exhibit” was held in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1932. The first folk festival in Eureka Springs was held on March 15, 1934, preceding the first National Folk Festival, held in St. Louis, Missouri, by 45 days. Performers from the Eureka Springs festival were invited to perform at that first National Folk Festival. The next major folk event in Eureka Springs was in 1947. Some folk don’t consider it to be the first Ozark Folk Festival. Programs from the first several Ozark Folk Festivals make clear that its founders felt the first was in 1948. As shown below, the “Sixth Annual Ozark Folk Festival” was in 1963, making 1948 the first.

Tickets for reserve seating range from $35 to $75 (all fees included), and are available at

They think of everything.

The Lonely Wild at Stickyz




Black Oak Arkansas, the southern hillbilly psycho-boogie band with over 40 years of history returns with a new release from Atlantic/Atco Records, Back Thar N’ Over Yonder, out October 15. The album is a goldmine of new and undiscovered Black Oak, containing five new songs from a 2013 reunion and 10 previously unreleased 1970’s tracks produced by the legendary Tom Dowd (Eric Clapton, Allman Brothers). The band met Dowd after Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records, signed the band to the label in 1970. Between 1972-75, the band found themselves in and out of Criteria Studios in Miami. “In those days, we was doing over 250 shows a year, every year,” says lead singer and washboardist Jim “Dandy” Mangrum in his speed-rap drawl, “On top of that, we was giving Atlantic 2 albums a year, every year. So, anytime we would get a few days off, we’d hightail it to Miami and lay down a few tracks with Dowd. After a while, we couldn’t keep up with which songs was going on which albums. So, when these songs showed up, it took me and Rickie awhile to even remember cutting them.” The album marks a new start for a band with an unbelievable streak of bad luck. Aside from divorces, drugs and near-death car wrecks, members of BOA faced jail time and homelessness. The band went through years of lawsuits with former management. Accusations flew everywhere. Millions of dollars disappeared. When their band compound burned to the ground, Jim Dandy was investigated on suspicion of arson and fraud. Early in their career, members formed a corporation, giving away power of attorney, with the aim of sharing their gains equally. Business and brotherhood were great for years. However, in the late 70’s when members tried to leave, problems arose. Drummer Tommy Aldridge had tried to leave BOA, but was not allowed. He finally snuck out of the band compound in the middle of the night and ended up suing band and management for his release. Bassist Daugherty was arrested and served time in prison for drug possession after he left the band. Guitarist Jett, who wanted to leave to begin a ministry upon finding Christianity, settled in a court to give up his land, home and royalties in exchange for his freedom. Legal battles continued, with both sides unable to make peace. For Mangrum and Reynolds, the final straw came when they helplessly watched as, in an unprecedented move, the entire BOA publishing catalog was sold on Ebay. Reynolds reflects, “when we wanted to begin enjoying life, we were left high & dry. We all lost our homes, cars, publishing and almost lost our band name. It got blamed on bad investments. All I know is some of us had to pawn our Gold albums to feed our families.” It was a sad fall for a band of brothers who had spent a decade building Black Oak Arkansas into a superstar act. And rock superstars, they were! Headlining arenas in the 70’s with opening acts such as Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith and The Eagles, BOA destroyed over 1000 stages from 72-76. They became one of the Top 5 touring acts in rock, earned 3 Gold albums, sold close to 5 million records, and became the largest private landowners in Arkansas. They gave millions to Arkansas charities and gave then-Attorney General Bill Clinton and wife Hillary their first limo ride. Boasting the first-ever 3 guitar lineup, Black Oak were an explosion of sex, sweat, scrubboards, bare-handed drum solos with a guitar-destroying ritual as their live climax. David Lee Roth, Vince Neil and Axl Rose all took pages (some say stole) Jim Dandy’s onstage persona. However, in the 21st century, it’s been punk and metal bands that have discovered and embraced BOA. Black Flag, Supersuckers, Butthole Surfers and Pantera can be counted as fans. Even after all the chaos, the band members all kept in touch over the years. “We were like abused children who all shared the same experience”, says Daugherty. The new songs feature a line-up of original and current members. Reunited originals Jim “Dandy” Mangrum, Rickie Lee Reynolds, Pat “Dirty” Daugherty, and Jimmy “Soybean” Henderson, were joined by current drummer Johnnie Bolin, bassist George Hughen, guitarist Hal McCormack and guitarist Buddy Church. Original guitarist Stanley “Goober Grin” Knight planned to participate, but passed away just weeks prior to recording. Through triumphs and tragedies, the Oak has stood strong. Bad luck, lawsuits and women couldn’t keep a fighter like Jim Dandy down. In the mid90’s, Mangrum, Reynolds and Daugherty reformed the band and they’ve been on the road since. Oh, it’s not like it was back in the day: no planes, buses, or road crews. 2013 finds the guys driving their own truck, loading their gear and playing to anyone who wants them. “That’s what this last 40 years have been about, pleasing the people,” Mangrum reflects. “No matter if it’s smoke or shine, there ain’t no buzz like the one you get walkin’ on that stage!” Black Oak Arkansas will appear at The Rev Room in Little Rock on October 18 and at the LongHorn Saloon in Fort Smith on October 25 NIGHTFLYING.COM • HARVEST • 2013


As we go to press, the annual Arkansas-Oklahoma state fair is underway. Also underway are the final warmweather shows in the outdoor venues. Add to these, the indoor facilities are in the process of welcoming back the outdoorsy partiers for the season. The Fort has a penchant for partying hard, and all one needs to do is drop by any of the clubs to feel that first-hand. A word of warning: we’ll be setting the date soon for the Nightflying 33-year anniversary bash. It’ll be in December of course, as are anniversary parties for anything that started in December. We’re consistent with that… This year the party will happen at two clubs: R. Landry’s and Webby D’s. Last year one venue was not nearly enough, you know. We have no idea just yet who will be appearing, but will be announcing that soon. (Any bands who might wish to join us should call the Nightflying office at (501)354-8577.) We’ll start at Landry’s and finish the evening at Webby’s, so I’m expecting a bit of a parade along the avenue…as both will briefly be happening at the same time. My warning then, is that you should plan now to make a big night of it. By our next issue we’ll have a date and potential line-up, so watch for it. R. Landry’s has been going through some changes lately. To begin with, previous co-owner Dori Colston no longer graces the place. Instead, Dori is gracing other music venues now, but in Austin, Texas. She’s been booking bands for the last couple years and has started her own agency, The Indie-Pendent talent agency, handling a dozen or so bands in this region. Spending time in Austin over the past few years as a rep for this publication at SXSW, Dori, shall we say, has been smitten by the allure of the bigtime music bidness. No longer content with our local scene, Dori is now representing some very big names: Roberta Flack, Davell Crawford, Shelley King, Wendy Colonna, Lisa Morales, Good Girls With Bad Intentions, Grant Peeples, Lia Rose, Robert Cline, Jr., along with most of the regional acts she’s been handling. Please visit www.indie-pendenta- for more details, or call (479)739-4199…or call just to touch base and say hello. Meanwhile, back at the farm, Natalie Wallace is the sole proprietor of R. Landry’s now, and has taken over the booking duties across the board. Don’t worry…she is still serving up the best New Orleans-style food, fantastic libations and cool atmosphere R. Landry’s has become famous for over the past several years. I caught a set of the band Honeyshine there recently, and had a real party of it. I really only went because my old friend Richard Burnett was a part of the band (I sent him to SXSW several years ago as a part of the Pope County Bootleggers…) Turns out that this was Honeyshine’s final performance, as one of the band members was moving to Tulsa…that night after the gig. I’m glad I got to see them, especially since they simply will not be anymore. Set to appear in the next several weeks are Luke Pruitt, Prince Albert & The Royal Knights, The After Five Jazz Band, The Crumbs, Tom Ware, The Bannister Brothers Band, Isayah’s Allstars, unplugged, Jon Dooly, Cutthroat Trout, Grant Pierson, Adam Hambrick, Gary Hutchison, Wanda Watson and more. And whatever you do, don’t miss the return engagement of Patrice Pike on November 2. Patrice is a favorite in these parts, and is a superb musicianperformer. There’s rarely a cover charge, but the bands welcome all welcome gratuities (ahem). To reach R. Landry’s by phone, call (479)783-2505……. I spent a great evening at Webby D’s recently, and caught 3 If By Sky for a very energetic show. Truth be told, even though the musicians did all the work, I was exhausted by the end of the show. Catch this band sooner than later. You will be glad you did. Artists set to appear at Webby’s in the next several weeks include Potojojo, The Brandon Butler Band, Country Jesus & Friends, Captain Nowhere, The Mark Albertson Trio, Isayah’s Allstars, unplugged, Brother Bagman, White Collar Sideshow for Halloween, Moonshine Mafia, The 1 Oz. Jig, The Cliff Hines Band, Speakeasy, Groovement, The Tif-

fany Christopher Band, Oklahoma guitar monster Steve Pryor and Earl & Them (the Cate Brother Band). Webby D’s is one of the coolest music venues in Arkansas and seeing a show there should be on your bucket list. For bookings call Jim at (479)4945661……. Neumeier’s Rib is down for the season. It’s a great place, but without a roof it can get mighty chilly in that courtyard. Thanks to Bill for another really fine music season. Can’t wait to see what next year brings. For bookings at the Rib Room call Bill at (479)494-RIBS (7427)……. Rooster’s is one of the Fort’s latenite clubs, and the only one with live music. True, the live bands are only Thursday through Saturday, but the club is open 7 days a week until 5 a.m. In the coming weeks look for Oreo Blue, Kickstart, The Bannister Brothers Band, Self-Inflicted Chaos, Ollie’s Trashcan, Shiftpoint and Truck Stop Poets. Rooster’s features several levels inside the club, as well as a very cool upstairs outdoor deck that overlooks the infamous Garrison Avenue. There are pool tables, arcade games, live bands and decent bar food. For bookings contact (479)783COCK (2625)....... Still no word yet about the reopening of Hero’s. We were unable to reach anyone prior to presstime, but we’ll have information on the new location when we can get it… For bookings at the club call (479)784-5055…….

Old Town of Fort Smith has live music most nights of the week. Set to appear in the coming weeks are The Kewitt Family, Sunni Gits Band, Motortrain, Sticky Fingers, First Jasoon, Bridge The Addiction, Jake Dill and more. Old Town is open every day and there’s seldom a cover charge.. Call (479)782-1999 for information....... Out on South Hwy. 71, Beef O’Brady’s checks in this month with a good calendar of music. Look for dates with Dorian Cross & Trouble Walkin’, The Pearson Brothers Band, Terry Staggs, Allen Beachy, Bo Phillips, Richie Owens, Flash, and Sweet & Lowdown. The food here is excellent, with an interestingly full menu. For bookings call Kim at (479)6469464……. The Movie Lounge is kicking tail and taking names. Set to appear are Prince Albert & The Royal Knights, Jamie Lou, Grant Pierson & John Magness, the Mark Albertson Trio, Larry B “Dance Party”, Gary Hutchison & John Magness, The Smokin’ Crawdads, The Sweet & Lowdown and more. And don’t miss the huge blowout on October 26, when the club hosts the KISR JetSetter’s Ball. This enormous party happened for years in Fort Smith at different locations. This year the MovieLounge is bringing all the madness to their club and it promises to be a do-notmiss event. Featured artists on the ball are Got It Covered, and the Don Bailey Jazz Combo featuring local torch singer Tabitha Graves. Every Tuesday, the club features Mr. Tom Ware and usually plenty of his musical partners in crime… For bookings call (479)226-3595…….



soul. Salt & Pepper, of course, are Tony Nardi and Eddie Mobley, a powerful musical duo who graced our cover a few months back, and have shared their musical doings at several Nightflying anniversary parties. Covers of classics from Jackie Wilson to Billy Preston, Stevie Wonder to Marvin Gaye, with dynamic vocals by both male and female voices, in lead and backup roles. They use mostly original arrangements, or at least very close to them, but this is not a bunch of wannabes imitating stars, no, these musicians are top notch. Great solos, sparkling rhythm section(s), just a joy to listen to. might get you somewhere or call 719-4803240 for booking and such.

I got another question about ‘Why obituaries’ from old friend and avid reader Tim Bradley. I decided I needed to write something in answer, more or less. The first one I did was for a man I considered an icon (I believe Ray Charles, but my memory has been failing me for some time, so I could be wrong about that). The point is, I did that one, then some more notables died and I was on a whole new path. I apologize to any readers who do not like obits, but I think I’l continue to make note of the passings of people who influenced me, influenced all of us, even if we don’t realize it. Take Ray Dolby, who died recently at 80. He set out to eliminate tape hiss from magnetic recordings and went on to gain dozens of patents, several Emmys, and an Oscar (for his contribution to movie sound), not to mention the establishment of Dolby Labs, changing the sound of our lives. Or Karen Black (74), who played in “Easy Rider” and many other seminal films, carving out a long career without going the leading-lady gambit. She influenced a lot of folks, both as smokin’ hot babe and actress of sublime stature. Or Elmore Leonard (87), who wrote clever crime fiction and told stories that were both amusing and intriguing, some even with memorable morals; wrote cool westerns too. Did you know that he wrote the novel from which the Paul Newman movie Hombre was taken? Tommy Morrison was born in Oklahoma but made Fort Smith his base for a good while. He took the heavyweight title from George Foreman in 1993 at the age of 23. Before that, he played Stallone’s opponent in “Rocky V” and, after that, he was tested for HIV and came up positive. His wife told ESPN that it was GuillainBarre´ syndrome, not HIV, but Tommy Morrison passed away at age 44. Another gladiator passed as well. Ken Norton, Sr. was not only a superior athlete, but an actor. He held the WBC heavyweight title until Larry Holmes took it, but his most famous fight was with Muhammad Ali, whose jaw Norton broke in a bout in 1973. He broke no jaws nor box office records with his movies, but they did have their audience. Ken Norton, Sr. was 70. Back to actresses: Julie Harris (87) was “the belle of Broadway” back in her day, winning five best actress Tony Awards; she did movie roles too, such as the awkward 12 year old in the film version of Carson McCullers’ Member of the Wedding and in Reflections in a Golden Eye played the haunted, sexually-repressed wife of Eddie Albert. Toward the end of her career she trod the boards as the female lead in On Golden Pond on Broadway. She once said that if she had had a bosom, she could have ruled the world. OK, this is not an obit, but still a bit of bad news: Linda Ronstadt has informed us that she has Parkinson’s and is now unable to sing. A great female musician has passed. Many of you may know Marian McPartland from NPR, but us older cats remember her as one of the premier jazz pianists of all time. She lived to the ripe old age of 95. Sid Bernstein, also 95 when he died, was a concert promoter whose greatest claim to fame was bringing The Beatles to New York City’s Shea Stadium in 1965 and ‘66. Unless you are an inveterate watcher of television talk shows, you probably will not recognize the name Keiko Douglas. She was a Japanese lady who married Jack Douglas, a writer of both books and TV shows (Tonight for one). They would appear together and between his sharp wit and her struggles with the English language, come up with some of the funniest shit you ever heard. She was 77. Oh yeah, the big boss of Toyota Motor Corporation from 1967 – 1982, Eiji Toyoda, has passed at the century mark. He was neither artist nor entertainer, but he influenced the car market and most of us still use cars. I reiterate that I am not covering live music any more, but I did happen to stop by Grady’s in Little Rock for a calzone one Friday night recently and they had a couple of the best performers I’ve ever encountered, playing to a crowd that was smaller than the wait staff. Pitiful. Hey, no kiddin’ now, y’all got to get out and support live music. If not, the music dies and we can’t have that. There was no cover at Grady’s and I saw a rock duo comparable to the White Stripes (to the detriment of the Stripes). There is music being played



all over and it’s not just in the River Market or the country clubs; it’s also in little venues all over town. Seek and ye shall find. And don’t forget the generous tip to the wait staff and to the musicians (especially if there’s no cover). Come on people, we all know the economy is bad, but what the hell, enjoy today, tonight, the eternal now. As for a plan for the future, how’s this: enjoy the music on your car stereo as you’re heading for the little place where you love to dance. After all, I could be there dancing. Who knows?

BACK THAR N OVER YONDER Black Oak Arkansas Atlantic Jim Dandy to the rescue one more time. The man is indomitable. I got this latest Black Oak album as an mp3 file, so listened to it in its entirety on my computer, which has a decent sound, but nowhere near what Jim Dandy and them deserve. No, it needs to be mind-numbingly loud, like in the old days (mainly because all us rockers are deaf now and can’t hear it otherwise). Seriously though, what we have here is rock ‘n’ roll plain and simple. A reminiscence of the old days for some and an introduction to a bygone era for others. Still rockin’ we can say, still outta sight, a bit slower maybe, but it’s still rock ‘n’ roll. And Jim Dandy, though his voice sounds a little strained, can still project that spirit of abandon that kept so many of us up late, throwing our bodies around like acrobats, drinking, smoking, raising our hands and our voices to the sky: “Rock ‘n’ Roll’ll never die!” I hit puberty the same time Elvis hit the stage and life was never the same. Not for me and not for millions of adolescents who caught a breath of tingling excitement and a nudge in the general direction of damn the authority figures, full speed ahead. Jim Dandy and Black Oak were not alone in promulgating that scene, but by god they had the attitude, demeanor, and cods to carry it off like they were the first folks to ever wear spandex and scream at mics. Now they’re back, a tad creakier perhaps, but that spirit, that spirit is as strong as ever. For further information, check with DEMO 2013 Heavy Suga’ & The SweeTones indie Oh yeah, here we go. Sizzling guitar licks on top of a rockin’ bass line, some sly keyboards, all topped by an intriguing voice. I hear “Damn Your Eyes” done better than I ever heard it by anybody, except maybe Etta James, and a sultry “Slip Away” is, well, bodacious. Bodacious might be a good word for the whole band, instrumentals and backing vocals alike. Exuberant is another good word, for the performance in it’s entirety as well as the feeling I get off the stereo. Hear Heather Crosse pluck those bass strings and sing her heart out. You go now to and get more information. Yes. WITH A DASH OF SOUL Salt & Pepper indie This is a marvelous collection of soul. Some of the tunes might get a cavil or two about being called soul, but even when it’s flat out R&B, it’s simply so soul, and when it borders on rock ‘n’ roll, still so

HEAVY LOAD Ben Miller Band indie Ben Miller plays instruments I never heard of, like a black box kick (seems to me it ought to be kick box regardless of color), plus a lot of standard stuff like jews harp, toy piano, harmonica, banjo, foot tambourine, guitars even. Oh, and he sings (at least that’s my interpretation of lead vox). Scott Leeper plays (oh no, here we go again) electric washtub bass, bass guitar, percussion, and back vox (A ha!). Doug Dicharry plays drums, electric washboard (getting used to it?), wild trombone, trumpet, mandolin, spoons, percussion, and back vox. And they do it with great skill and even greater energy. This is not your everyday band, no sir. They like to jazz up old folk standards, among other things. They make up stuff too, or at least they play songs I know I never heard before and most of them rock. Then they segue into a tender ballad. But gospel? Okay, now they’re just showin’ off. Quite a band, the Ben Miller Band. Visit or on Facebook.

THE ORIGINAL HONEYDRIPPER Roosevelt Sykes Blind Pig It would not be news of record for us to get a great disc from Blind Pig. It would be news if they sent out something subpar. Sykes (no relation to Keith) is a hell of a piano player and one more hell of a singer. Not to mention that he’s been around for decades doin’ his thing, that thing being to spread the boogie. He covers Fats Waller’s “Honeysuckle Rose” with verve and panache, but most of the cuts here are originals. You might even recognize some, such as “Drivin’ Wheel” or “Please Don’t Talk About Me When I’m Gone.” Yeah, that’s right. Go to to find a whole catalog of great albums. PENNIES IN A JAR April Martin Shrimp Toast Sweet. Personal. Simple. Peter Calo (who also produced) adds some spice on guitar, but the songs are April’s own. They were recorded at The Farmhouse and Tater Music (no idea where they are). One of her songs mentions the cold light of day, a fairly common phrase, but one that I’ve always wondered about. Moonlight is cool, most nights anyway, but the light of day, i.e. the sun, is anything but cold, at least here in Arkansas. Back to April: I’d like to do a duet with her. She has a lovely voice, able to go from alto to a relative soprano, though she spends most of her time pitching her voice on the low side, even when she’s doing it lightly, almost whispery (Calo sings along with her on at least one such occasion). I just think her sweet tone could ameliorate my croak. Oh well, even an old geezer can dream, but I have the feeling she’s not into traveling: no contact information. On the other hand, she does have a swinging number “It Ain’t About The Chassis Anymore” that has something good under the hood, so maybe she’s ready to ride out. I like her thought

(from inside the front cover) that putting pennies in a jar shows an optimistic attitude about the future that is rooted in the present, reflecting “faith that our small quotidian actions do in fact amount to something important.”

BARRELHOUSE STOMP Chris James / Patrick Rynn Earwig Barrelhouse indeed. These guys romp and roll through more than a houseful of original tunes, all of them better’n a barrel of house. Or was that monkeys? If you had an unlimited number of monkeys in a barrel, would they compose a sonata? No, they’d make up something like this. Right? Roll out the barrel and we’ll have a barrel of fun. OK, I’m being silly, but this music is so good it’s silly, if you know what I mean. Among other sterling bits of bringing it, they have Henry Gray playing piano and Willie “Big Eyes” Smith drumming, as well as saxophones everywhere, including at least one track with three tenor saxes (Eddie Shaw, Johnny Viau, and Norbert W. Johnson). Jody Williams adds guitar; Rob Stone, harmonica; David Maxwell and Aaron Moore also tickle the ivories. Hey, what’s not to like? This is truly a fun album. Especially when you realize that seven of the twelve songs were written by Chris James, Patrick Rynn, and Rob Stone. Their covers include a big Bill Broonzy tune and one by Elmore James. It’s all good stuff. Check out and see what I mean. The album was recorded over several sessions, some in Chicago, Illinois and others in Tempe, Arizona. And I think I forgot to mention that Chris James sings and plays guitar and Patrick Rynn is on electric bass.

THE HOPSON SESSIONS Blues Women International Untouchable Lots of blues in many different styles, all done so well that you’ll find yourself liking something you never liked before. Kelly Chappue leads off with a torchy “Good When I’m Bad” and then comes Sunday Wilde’s “More Than A Bit Crazy” and it just keeps on going. If you don’t find something here that flips your wig, you ain’t got it on tight enough. Heather Crosse is on here, as are Billie Feather, Julia Magness, Diedra, April Mae, Cindy Maloney, Dee Dee Lavell, and Joni Buffalohead / Alexandra Buffalohead. These international women of the blues are definitely worth listening to, even if you’ve never been a fan of the blues, because the different styles and tempos offer something for everyone.

YES, I BELIEVE I WILL Steve Howell and The Mighty Men indie Dave Hoffpauir, whom you may remember from Ho Hum, drums deftly behind the exquisite picking of Steve Howell and

Chris Michaels (who doubles on bass), with tasty keys from Jason Weinheimer, which all adds up to the positive, but the real stars of the show are the guitars. Just listen to this: Kevin Ryan Signature Abbey Grand Parlor, Collings OM41 ASB, National Resorocket, Gibson ES 335, Eastman T386, Nash T63, Indiana 6-string guitarbanjo, Danelectro baritone electric, and hell I forget the rest. Howell does the singing in a sometimes sweet tenor, other times plaintive baritone, pitching it to fit the curve, which bends from the Wayne P. Walker / Mel Tillis piece “Walk On Boy” to traditional tunes, wending through “Wasted Minds” by Danny Barnes, a soulful plaint about the plight of young folks unable to view a bright future. He even revisits a pop hit from my late teens: DeWayne Blackwell’s “Mr. Blue” (made famous in 1959 by The Fleetwoods). It makes me cry, not so much because of the sentiment or the singing, rather that I miss those years and wish I could go back and rectify at least one of the terrible mistakes I made in high school. Try for contact or go to for booking, or for fun, or even

TRIBUTE TO JOHNNY PEREZ Wild Ride indie Johnny Perez played drums for Sir Douglas Quintet, a seminal ‘60s rock band. He moved on to recording (Topanga Skyline Studios) and apparently inspired the musicians on this album. They are: Marek Lisiak, guitars and vocals; Kerri “Berry” Lisiak, drums and vocals; Charley Tichenor IV (‘good old Doctor Tichenor’s, best antiseptic in town), bass. They put a new wrinkle in some old rock standards and add a new one of their own (I think – I cannot remember hearing it before). Anyway, the Lisiaks at least might be found for more info at WEB STUFF or what I gathud out the net this month....

SOUNDS MADE IN MOUNTAINS, VOL. 2 Various Artists First Security First thing: this collection of fifteen songs is attempting to raise funds to fight homelessness in Northwest Arkansas. That makes a damn good reason to support it and the fact that it contains all this great music from some of our most talented folk, bordering on the fantastic, well, that’s just icing on the cake. Brick Fields, Oreo Blue, Shannon Wurst, Adams Collins, Earl Cate (appearing as Earl & Them, which might include Jimmy Thackery) and a dozen other acts donated their time and energy to lend a hand in making a difference, a huge difference, in the lives of who knows how many people, including little children and people like me. Yes, I was homeless in NWA once upon a time, dependent on the kindnesses of mostly musicians I knew. (What do you call a singer without a girlfriend, right?) It didn’t turn out particularly well, but I survived and I have some solid friends in and around Fayetteville. I only hope that by encouraging y’all to help out I can sort of give back to the place I hold dear in my heart and soul. Given the choice, I’d like for it to be where I depart this plane (peacefully preferably). Lot of fine music here, folks, end to end. Please check out and find out how you can avail yourself of all this mountain magic and help wipe out homelessness in Northwest Arkansas. I kid you not, this is some of the best music I’ve heard in a long time. Skill and imagination abound and it simply seems to grow as it goes along. First Security Bank ( sponsored the gig but I don’t think they actually produce recordings as a business. The disc was mastered at East Hall Recording; visit for further information.

PAX VOLUMNI Youngblood Brass Band Tru Thoughts This album starts off with something like hip hop or rap but quickly morphs into a big brass music machine, abandoning the realm of rhymes. I reviewed a band in these pages a dozen years ago that these guys remind me of, except they’re bigger and brassier and have a larger percussion section. I recall that I called that band’s music “experimental” and got my butt chewed by the band leader. I wouldn’t call what YBB does experimental but it definitely does not conform to standard stuff. The percussion is fantastic, not to short the saxes or trombones, but as good as they are, the drummers just beat the band. I don’t know how they’re going to get the whole jam group in Stickyz, much less the audience. Try HUMILITY Noel Peterson indie I’ve heard snippets of his stuff. Pleasant sort of indie poprock or whatever the young folk call it these days. You can sample his wares at bandcamp or try for, you know, further factifications. THOSE BRUISES Motel Life True Grit Interesting! They are releasing an EP edition of only 300 copies, 100 in blue / black vinyl with purple splatter and 200 in plain black vinyl.

A REBEL’S SOUL, VOLUMES 1 AND 2 (MY SISYPHUS) (THE QUEST) Jack Schauer Oops, I left out that this is an indie product. This guy is from North Dakota and (I think) doing these recordings on his own. I reviewed positively one of his albums about wandering and returning last issue and here he comes back with this autobiographical concept double album with soul baring and classical references that lure the listener closer to the speakers to catch any nuance, of which there are not just a few. He travels through some deep valleys and awkward heights, but does so on his own terms, his sense of self (and humor) intact. I urge any of my readers, either one o’ y’all, to check this guy’s music, especially if you are doing or thinking about doing independent recording. Wander to fomoinfo.

And then there’s Rone: whatever the hell that is. Rock ‘n’ Roll, y’all! Have fun but treat your body right. And don’t forget to relax and let the world go away as often as possible…

---Peter Read The word is that there were more bikers in Eureka Springs during BB & BBQ than in Fayetteville. This town is a favorite destination for motorcycle enthusiasts anyway, with its winding streets and hill climbs…not to mention that it’s a place where everyone can hang out and not feel out of place. The restaurants, clubs, hotels and motels seem to go out of their ways to accommodate bikers throughout the year. And when there’s any official motorcycle event thousands descent upon this mountain burg like flies to molasses. The whole town is gearing up for the 66th Annual Ozark Folk Festival, coming right up. This annual gathering brings thousands of musicians and their supporters to the city, once dubbed as the country’s largest open-air asylum.

Chosen To Sang The Blues

Brick Fields & The Chosen Ones

---Charles Ragsdell Back in the seventies, I was blessed to get to know Mike “Burger” Scoggins, who many of you know as “St. Gypsy Woman”, who posthumously provides the Horrorscopes for Nightflying. Burger was not only a great forecaster of whacky horoscopes, he and his friend Tim Sullivan performed all around Little Rock, Arkansas, plus he played in a band, The Sweet Magnolia Band . But my first and favorite place to see them play was at the fabled White Water Tavern, where I also first met The Cate Brothers. Burger & Friends were all awesome musicians, but also wonderful people who made even a farm boy from the Delta like me feel welcome to sit in on their after-hour jams, many of which often lasted for the rest of the weekend! Sadly, we lost Burger way too early in his life, but his music is still alive and bringing musicians together. Think about it. How could I have ever dreamed back then that decades later I would get to work with Burger’s niece Rachel Fields

and her band, record a Burger tune, and even have one of the Cate Brothers sit in on guitar? Somethings are clearly meant to be. This new album, Go Ahead and Sang The Blues is one. Thanks, Burger for getting us all together! Enough about ancient history... What about the new CD and the music? Well, Rachel is a real talent with a gift from God that simply blows me away. A “quadruple threat”- Rachel writes, sings, plays guitar and flute. Her husband Larry plays guitar and sings, and together they perform as Brick Fields, an acoustic duo. Add The Chosen Ones to the name, and you get a great backing band, complete with harmonica, bass, drums and keys added to the mix. Early during the album’s planning stages Rachel and Larry asked me to help produce the album. I talked Rachel into setting up a Kickstarter account that raised just over $5,000 in crucial support. Rachel and Larry set up the session time with engineer Dave Singleton, who has an awesome studio set up in a

school building in Rogers, Arkansas. We were blessed to have some great musicians sit in with Rachel and Larry on the recording sessions, including RJ Mischo on harmonica, Earl Cate on guitar, John Davies on bass, Johnny Arredondo on drums and Matt Jenkins on keys. Additional vocals were provided by Barbara Raney, Rain Equine, Carrie Roberts, Jody Andrews and Jennifer Parker. There are thirteen great tracks on the album. All of the songs are originals written by Rachel Fields & Larry Brick except ‘Oh Lottie Day’ by the late Michael “Burger” Scoggins, ‘Way of Time’ by Karen Carroll, ‘Guilty’ by Randy Newman, ‘That’s All’ by Sister Rosetta Tharpe And ‘My Starter Won’t Start This Morning’ by Lightnin’ Hopkins. The album opens with “Barefoot Woman”, a rousing Blues tune that sets the tone for the rest of the album - great songs, awesome vocals and outstanding musicianship. There are even a couple of acoustic tunes we recorded in the music room of The Rosalie, the 125 year old Victorian home in Eureka Springs my wife Lori and I are re-

storing. One of the acoustic songs is “Guilty,” the Randy Newman hit. My only regret in the entire album is not having a better microphone available that night other than my trusty Shure 58, as Rachel’s vocals simply overpowered the microphone! That is how powerful her voice is! The CD is hot off the presses as I write this, and a hundred or so have been sent to The Blues Foundation for consideration for a Blues Music Award nomination. There will be CD release parties around the state, sponsored in part by Nightflying, The Entertainment Guide. The first was in Little Rock at The Joint in Argenta on October 4th. Next up will be in Fayetteville at George’s on Oct 10th, then at Crossroads in Clarksville on Oct 19th.

One more year, BB & BBQ has rolled through the area and is now on the road until this time next year. We have no final figures just yet, but by all accounts it was a superbly successful gathering. Tens of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts filled the streets, motels, hotels, campgrounds, clubs and restaurants for the week long affair. There were no out and out problems we are told, and in general it was a boon to the economy of Northwest Arkansas. And with those tens of thousands, there were around 200,000 spectators in the Altered State for this rally. I am happy to report that the Phoenix nightclub is going great guns these days. Ever since the club changed hands, there’s a new true music venue on Dickson Street. On the bill in the coming weeks are Third Party, I Do Declare, The Wurly Birds, Silverstone Music, Twofold, StereoKill, 90 lb.

With the cooler weather much of the normal activity will have to be curtailed until next Spring. Appearing in the coming weeks are Toe Funk Jam Band, Isayah’s Acoustic Duo, Stephen Neeper & Wild Hearts, The Howling Brothers, Jesse Harris & The Gypsy Sparrows and probably a few more if the weather permits.

The restaurant/club itself is a veritable art gallery too, featuring works by area artisans for sale. The Greenhouse Grille is located at 481 So. School in Fayetteville. To reach them by phone call (479)4448909……. With this cooler weather, both Jose’s are geared down with their beer gardens, as one would expect. It’s Biblical in nature, actually: “to every thing there’s a season” and all that. Also down for the season are Powerhouse Seafood, Herman’s and virtually any place that features outdoor shows. It is the nature of things, you know…pun intended…

King Biscuit Time Helena gets the blues

---Sondra Goode The King Biscuit Blues Festival is one of the nation s foremost showcases of Blues Music. Our mission is to sustain the culture, the heritage, and the authenticity of the Delta Blues. The King Biscuit Blues Festival is held every Columbus Day Weekend in October. Tens of thousands of blues enthusiasts, as well as historians, from all over the world converge upon Historic Downtown Helena, Arkansas to hear stirring and uplifting performances of this American art form. The King Biscuit Blues Festival, is one of the nation’s foremost showcases of blues music. Held for three days annually in October, tens of thousands of blues enthusiasts converge on historic downtown Helena, Arkansas to hear stirring and uplifting performances of an American art form on the banks of the Mississippi River. (As the home of ‘King Biscuit Time’, the longest running radio show ever, Helena became legendary in the Delta.) Sonny Boy Williamson and other musicians played live on KFFA every weekday, pausing for King Biscuit Flour commercials and announcements of their next nighttime performances. Jim O’Neal, the editor of Living Blues Magazine at the time and an authority on blues history, said, “The King Biscuit hour was the thing that really crystallized blues music in this area. Muddy Water and B.B. King would come home from working in the fields every day just to listen to the King Biscuit hour. In an interview with The Daily World in October of 1986, harmonica wizard James Cotton expressed the feelings of many Delta blues musicians who chose to “come home to Helena for the first King Biscuit Blues Festival.“ From original King Biscuit Time artists such as Robert Jr. Lockwood and Pinetop Perkins, to younger performers such as Anson Funderburgh, a wide range of blues stars were thrilled to be a part of Helena’s celebration of its musical roots. Artists, too, remember a time - the 1940’s and 1950’s - when the town was filled with music. Pinetop Perkins, a King Biscuit regular, said in the Daily World that 1940s Helena “aint nothin’ like it is now. I used to play all night long at a club called the Hole in the Wall. We got paid $3 a night plus all the whiskey we could drink. We’d play all night and then go home and sleep until it was time to play again. Those were the days.” But by the mid-1980s, Helena had changed from a jumping town to a community in danger of dying. Businesses were closing and people realized the downtown area was decaying, but no one knew what to do to save it. Experienced Main Street directors recommended community festivals to get local people back to town and, at the same time, promote tourism. The group, which would later form the Sonny Boy Blues Society, became the core of the first King Biscuit Blues Festival planning committee. Helena’s musical heritage was largely unknown even to hardcore blues fans. The King Biscuit Blues Festival was an effort by local blues lovers to establish Helena’s rightful place in the Delta’s musical history. The King Biscuit Blues Festival did not run into any problems until 2005 when the festival became the Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival. It wasn’t until the festival’s 25th Anniversary that Executive Director Munnie Jordan and her supporters began to look into getting the King Biscuit name back, and they finally discovered that its current owner is Wolfgang’s Vault, a vast archive of live music performances and recordings in San Francisco that includes the King Biscuit Flower Hour. Jordan says that as soon as Wolfgang’s Vault understood the history of the blues festival in Helena, they allowed the King Biscuit name to be used again. So the 2011 Festival was again the King Biscuit Blues Festival. For additional information and the schedule of artists, please visit ---Compiled by Sondra Goode from their website [See the full line-up in our Concert Calendar, page 28]



Autumn usually brings a quieter time of things in the Spa. The lake activities slow way down, and the tourist season takes a welcome break in this National Park. Much like Fayetteville when the students are out for Summer, the locals finally feel safer venturing out on the streets to the clubs, without all the visitors cramming the roads. We had a marvelous time at the Spa City Blues festival, despite the heat hitting the century mark each day. It was a far cry from last year, though, when the torrential rains actually shut down the festival. The bands and artists who played were, to say the least, troopers, and each got in a spirited sweat, er, set. All in all it was a tremendous success, and our hat’s off to David and Sherree Hughes and all the good folks of the Spa City Blues Society for yet another memorable blues festival. The highlight, at least to us, was the exciting set by Shakura S’Aida. This lady romped and boogied with a level of energy that was very infectious to the crowd, who ended up on its collective feet a couple songs into the show. Onstage she was musically making out with the guitarist throughout the evening, with the two having a more than obvious musical love affair to the delight of all present. Indeed, he’d play a tasty lick or two and she would seemingly swoon with orgasmic delight. And this lasted the entire set, too, much to the delight of the fans…

The Big Chill is a true musicians venue, and almost no matter who is actually booked, a whole bunch of players are likely to sit in on any given night. For bookings and other information, call (501)624-5185..... Another very cool club is the Ohio Club on Bath House Row. This is the oldest continually operating nightclub in Arkansas and perhaps the entire country. There’s real history here, and all one needs to do to feel it is to walk in that door. In addition to the Ohio Club Players, the house band, there are numberous artists who play regularly at the club. Look for Jocko Deal, The Joe Pitts Band, David Ball, Mike Stanley and more. The Ohio was especially hot during the Blues Festival, with Blues Guitar Diva Samantha Fish heating up the room. If you haven’t heard Samantha make a point to do so. Not only is she a

town Violets, Phillip Bince, Steve Bates, The John Calvin Brewer Band. Plan now to party down with Tragikly White for a Halloween blowout. For bookings call Brian at (501)525-1616, or email……. Lucky’s Bar & Grill has live bands every weekend. Set to appear in the coming weeks are Hotel Casanova, The Karla Case Band, Raising Grey, Sol Definition, Tightrope and Crash Meadows. Lucky’s is open 7 days a week, serves lunch and dinner, has a full bar, live bands on weekends, pool tables, arcades and a fine stereo system, and it’s smoker-friendly. There’s never a cover charge at Lucky’s and the food is good. And there’s plenty of nearby parking, too. For bookings call the club at (501)622-2570… While you’re in the Spa, make a point to drop by Guido’s Hot Springs Music. From a sort of holein-the wall tiny shop a few years ago, Guido and company have been building inventory, building décor, and really creating a great music emporium. Guido, a very fine musician in his own right, set his sights rather high when he began this venture: to make a music store as cool and fullserviced as the legendary Banjo Dan’s was, and he has succeeded in my opinion. The store is on the right just up the street from the Big Chill, at 812 Higdon Ferry Road. To reach Hot Springs Music by phone, call (501)625ROCK…….

After the festival on Saturday we finished the evening at The Big Chill, where Heather Crosse Samantha Fish Band

Heavy Suga’ & The Sweetones

and her band Heavy Suga’ & The SweeTones were working out to a packed house. This is one of the Chill’s favorite bands, too…at a club that revolves around great live music 7 days a week. There’s no cover charge at the Big Chill, except for very special events…like the annual Nightflying anniversary parties that happen each December. (No, we haven’t set a date for this years’ bash yet, but we’re working on it…December 29th?) Set to appear in the coming weeks are Ghost Town Blues Band, Christine DeMeo, Jocko Deal, Bobby Doherty, Texarkana, John Calvin Brewer, David Ball, Lightnin’ Lee Langdon, Dean Agus, Mister Lucky, Shane Simanton, Delta Donnie, Mike Mayberry & The Slow Hands, Joe Hall, Dayton Waters, Highway 124, and a list as long as a wellrope. They also serve very fine bar food so you’re not drinking on an empty stomach. In addition, every Sunday brings DJ Chucky D., with his own take on Karaoke. And every Monday, David Ball & Brian Bearden host the stage. And for those who haven’t been by in a while, they recently paved that parking lot, so you no longer have to trip your way in. (Out, though, is entirely depending on how you behave while you’re there…)



mean guitarist, she’s downright gorgeous, too. She is what I would call a dangerous heartbreaker if there ever was one. And there’s never a cover charge here, so make a point to tip the bands and workers. The new house band is killer, too. Mike put together his own house band and the players all know each other musically well enough to be able to anticipate each other’s moves and licks. But in the meantime, make a point to drop by the club, have a drink and a meal, and boogie down with The Ohio Club Players. To reach the Ohio for directions and other information call (501)627-0702… Maxine’s is rocking tremendously, especially for this time of year. In the coming weeks look for the likes of The Solar Federation, Modoc, Open Fields, JD Wilkes & The Dirt Daubers, Amanda Avery, FoulPlay Cabaret, Lucero, Adam Faucett, Mya’s Madams Drag Show, Water Liars, May The Peace Of The Sea Be With You, Damn Arkansan, Swampbird, White Glove Test, The Mumfords, Mothwind, Brutally Frank, aotearoa, Mad Nomad and Flight Machine. Maxine’s also sports a full menu and fuller bar, is open every day, and has a great sound and light system to boot. For bookings call (501)321-0909……. Razorback Pizza has been stepping up to the plate and is becoming a serious music venue. I spent a fine evening there recently watching Heavy Suga’ & The SweeTones. Brian Chidester, the general manager, informs that he is working with the owner to turn the club into a live music haven, on par with the Big Chill and The Ohio Club, and is planning to feature bands and artists much more prominently than they have. They have a sweet outdoor facility, but with the cooler weather upon us, plans are to bring the music inside throughout the cooler months. Set to appear in the coming weeks are Mid-

Photos: Sherree Hughes “Don’t try to fight it. Make the time. Coupla joints and a bottle of wine. You’ll be glad that you did.” - Cross Canadian Ragweed from Brooklyn Kid It’s the beginning of autumn in the Altered State. The weather seems to be at odds with itself about turning down the thermostat and painting the leaves or hanging on to the last remnants of summertime. In the meantime, I’m staring out the window of my hotel room on the west bank of New Orleans, watching cars drive across the Mississippi River bridge to and from the Big Easy, contemplating the last half century of my life. I hit a mile marker this month that, for most folks, might make them begin to question their mortality and legacy. I turned fifty this September. The big 5-0. I’m really not too upset about it that I can tell. Seems like any other day. It does demand a moment or two of reflection about what has passed and what is looming down the road. As the season changes into the autumn of the year, so too, do I begin to wander into the autumn of my life. Ya know, I’ve done a lot of things over fifty years of living on this rock. I’ve trained teachers and educated students for well over half that time. Won a few awards and gained some notoriety along the way. I’ve managed to shake hands with a president, pat a couple of governors on the back and party with a few celebrities. I believe I’ve helped make a difference in the places I’ve lived with community service. I’ve had a couple of mildly successful businesses, a t-shirt company and a booking agency. I’ve traveled the country and have made many, many friends while doing so. As I look back on the trail I have left in my wake, I realize, with no great surprise, that the best things I have done have nothing to do with awards or music or business. The things I’m most proud of are my kids and my gandkids. They are my legacy. It fills my soul to see my children working to be successful in their own right and carving their life from the landscape the world has placed before them. Though they are scattered to the winds most days, they are always in my heart. Their children are amazing. My grandkids are empty vessels begging to be filled with love and knowledge, afraid of nothing and scared of everything. If I shed these mortal coils today I believe I would leave behind memories of love, service and caring that these little guys and gals will carry on into their generation. That makes it all worthwhile.

festival were: Samantha Fish at the Ohio Club for a pre-festival concert. Fish is an up and coming singer and guitar player who wowed the standing room only crowd with her songs and her playing. All of the after-festival parties were hits. With talent like Ghost Town Blues Band, Little G Weevil, Bart Walker, Brandon Santini, Joe Pitts and Rachelle Coba, blues fans were treated to some great music in up close and personal settings. World famous artist George Hunt designed the festival poster for the second year. A reception in his honor was attended by a packed house at Blue Moon Gallery. Mr. Hunt stayed for the entire festival, signing autographs and meeting fans. The festival performances were off the chain. Shakura S’aida took the crowd by storm. Zac Harmon took the crowd to church. Southern Hospitality closed the event with a set of slow burning, swampy blues. The bands showing up and sitting in with one another. Southern Hospitality members Damon Fowler, Victor Waingwright and JP Soars showed up for Brandon Santini’s set at the Ohio Club to cap the night. The workshops were a hit and included photography by Jenn Ocken, gospel blues with Zac Harmon and a build your own cigar box guitar with Bluesboy Jag. The volunteers were a hit. Many, many comments were shared with us about the helpfulness and cheerful attitude of the over 80 volunteers that worked the festival.

Bizarro Buddha A group of us said goodbye to our friend Dave at Fat Jack’s. I don’t even know Dave’s last name though we’ve been friends for a couple of years. He’s moved off to San Diego to live and work. Dave was the bar tender/manager at Fat Jack’s and always had a smile and a quick wit to keep you entertained. Sporting “Dave’s Not Here. He’s literally not here.” T-shirts, the crowd that showed up proved it doesn’t take long for someone to make an impact on people. The Ben Franks Band provided the music for the going away event, wowing listeners with great harmonies and a righteous bluegrass-reggae version of Bob Marley’s ‘Get Up, Stand Up’.

Granddaughter Kenxie: already got the rock ‘n’ roll bug The fact that some of them are probably going to end up playing music does make me a little nervous. One dances around, singing, in nothing but a diaper. Another sings Taylor Swift tunes, complete with the dance moves. Yet another can play guitar hero in his sleep. Be afraid folks. Be very afraid! The knowledge that they are tied to me should scare the hell out of you anyway. Reflecting on some more recent events, the 17th Annual Hot Springs Blues Festival is in the books. Held over Labor Day Weekend, the festival recovered from last year’s wash out by Hurricane Isaac to present blues fans with a stellar line-up, great workshops and a damn good time! Some of the highlights of this year’s

better place. Speaking of volunteering, I recently helped with an event at Maxine’s for Willow’s Wish. Willow’s Wish is a foundation set up to assist a family that recently lost everything to a fire, including their 18 month old daughter, Willow. The event included performances by Brad Pierce of the band Knox Hamilton, Crash Meadows and Stephen Neeper and the Wild Hearts. Pierce has great vocals and some catchy tunes. Make it a point to catch Knox Hamilton if you get the change. Crash Meadows is approaching legend status as an Arkansas Band. They’ve been around for a number of years and have honed their show to that professional vibe that only seasoned bands can pull off. Their stage presence is on the level of the Cate Brothers, Ho Hum and Oreo Blue. The band pulled off a cover of the Beatles’ ‘Come Together’ that was impressive. Neeper and the Wild Hearts have come a long way since the last time I heard them play. Stephen Neeper handles lead vocals and guitar duties. The band has evolved from a blues band to more of a Texas style road house band with hints of the Black Crowes and tinges of Austin, Texas. Neeper has become much more comfortable as a vocalist and the band has matured, adding a second guitar that provides another layer to their music. Willow’s Wish has created a foundation to assist the family as they try to recover. The foundation will remain in place to assist other families in the future. For more information or to make a donation go to www. I caught a show by the band Bizarro Buddha recently at the Hot Springs Farmer’s Market. The band, with one cast change, becomes a Rush tribute band. Bizarro Buddha is a bit of a Rush-influenced band themselves, offering up a little different twist on things.

I was caught off guard during the festival when Charles “Rags” Ragsdell interrupted me while I was about to introduce one of the acts. I volunteer at Rags’ production of the Eureka Springs Blues Weekend. I’ve been doing that a few years now. He presented me with the Volunteer of the Year honor for this past festival. The honor is voted on by the other volunteers. I am very proud to have received the recognition, certainly unexpected, because it was given by the people I worked shoulder to shoulder with. I don’t volunteer for recognition. I do it because I like to give something back. People have given to me over the year and volunteering is one the way I can return the favor or pay it forward. I also love the music and volunteering gives me the opportunity to be around it. If you don’t volunteer in your community you should think about it. Give your time and talents to those who need it. You’ll be glad that you helped make the world a

So, as I end this issue’s column and try to tie all this drivel into a message to you, I suppose the message would be to enjoy your life. Don’t spend time worrying about what you didn’t do. Get out and do it! Go enjoy your favorite band every chance you get. Take that trip you’ve been talking about. Volunteer for a cause. Make a difference! Hug your babies every chance you get and encourage their dreams. And tell them you love them every day. No matter how long we live, remember, it can be taken from us in the blink of an eye. Don’t waste time worryin’ because it’s just that…a waste of time. Make your life extraordinary folks! It might just get you backstage. Peace everybody... ---DH



Getting wet in Harrison:

Every new birth has growing pains... ---Joe Harless Happy October to all you fine people. I’m Shakey Joe reporting from Boone County, Arkansas, nestled as far north in Arkansas as can be, tight up against Bull Shoals Lake. Biggest news thing I suppose this last month was the startup of the new Meadow View Ranch. It is the brain child of Mr. Paul Honeycutt who is a true music lover for sure and a genuine visionary. He has taken his farm of 65 acres just a few miles east of Harrison and turned it into a picker’s paradise. Imagine this, you know what a free range chicken farm is, 65 acres of chickens mulling around pecking. Well this is 65 acres of musicians wandering around picking bluegrass, new grass, country, folk, old-timey and maybe some blues. There is a stage for bands, lots of shade trees, water, porta johns, electricity, food and drinks. RV parking is only $4 a day, admission is $10 a day, or $17 for both days of jamming. Sounds like a great way to spend a weekend, so bring a chair, a guitar/banjo, fiddle or whatever makes the noise you like the best. There is a big upcoming show on the weekend of October 11th, with performances by Rhonda

something; it was all she had left of her fathers. And since she was in her late 80’s, it was time to pass it on and she chose me. It was her daddy’s guitar. Now you’re asking what makes this old late 1800’s beat up guitar significant enough to America’s history and U.S. Veterans that I would display it at the Diamond City Veterans Day Festival? Well first off it is about as rare a guitar or artifact as there can be because there is only one guitar like this in the entire world. Secondly it belonged to a young man named Ben Miller from Duluth, Minnesota, who enlisted in 1894. He took his parlor size guitar with him. He formed a band with his fellow soldiers and when the Spanish American War started he was there, playing for the troops. The soldiers that fought at San Juan Hill listened to this guitar. Teddy Roosevelt listened to this guitar. So did Black Jack Pershing. In 1916 when Pershing pursued Poncho Villa, he had Private Ben Miller and his guitar with him on the Texas border during the Mexican Revolution as part of the 81st Wild Cat Div 318th Artillary Band. General Black Jack Pershing had a true love of music. It was very important to him. So when the U.S. entered WWI, Ben Miller was called upon again. He and his guitar went

Vencent and the Rage, Kenny Stinson and Perfect Tym’n, along with Clancy Ferguson and the Rag Tags. That’s one heck of a show. Bo Johnson of the Rebel Hounds will be the master of ceremonies. So if you like down home music and beautiful scenery at a rock bottom price, wander on up to Boone County and be some of the first people to enjoy the offerings of this camping and jamming oasis. The website is: and their phone number is: 870-416-1166. Tell them you saw all about it in Nightflying. The music will flow from first coffee until everybody’s asleep. I called the fellow who’s trying to get that 10,000 square feet music venue in Harrison open called the Dizzy Lizard and asked him about how it was going. He summed up his venture with the words, “Well we’ve hit a few snags.” I personally think that’s Navajo code talk for something else, but who knows? All the music loving folks I talk with in Boone County wish him their best, and wish that old reptile would open his doors. Up here in Diamond City we have a big ta do coming up on November 8th and 9th. There is a silent auction at the Community Center Friday night from 5 to 8 p.m.; all proceeds going to our library. It’s amazing all the stuff the ladies come up with. Then on Saturday it’s the Diamond City Veterans Day Fall Festival. The parade will start at 9 a.m. at the First Baptist Church parking lot. Then the parade will wind thru town and end up at the Community Center, where they will have vendors and food and what not all day inside the building. The concert will start at 7 p.m. and will feature Americana music. The opening performer is Mr. James Reardon playing the songs of one of these countries greatest troubadours, Mr. Bob Dylan, on guitar and harmonica. Then the headliner will be the amazing Rebel Hounds, a bona fide modern day country jug band, with washtub bass, guitar and yes, an electric jug, playing the sounds of Merle, Hank and Johnny. This will be a great night of food and fun. Bring your stompin’ shoes and fishing poles. Stay the whole weekend; we have resorts and motels right here on the North Arkansas Peninsula and a couple of right fine restaurants too. There is something else that I think some of you American history and military buffs might be very interested in, especially if you’re a veteran of one of the wars this country has been in. There’s a lot of talk about the Civil War, World War II and Vietnam, but seldom do you hear much discussion about the First World War. I myself knew very little about it. That all changed about 15 years ago when an elderly lady who I knew came into my music shop in northern Arizona and handed me a wonderful gift that has turned into a passion of sorts. She asked me to care for it, keep it safe, maybe get it into a museum or

to France and played his music to lessen the horror and boost the morale of his fellow soldiers from day one until WWI ended. While Private Miller was in Europe, he began to engrave his guitars back with a history of battles he was at. There on the back is the history of America’s fighting men, town by town, date by date, battle by battle. On the side bouts of this guitar are listed all the names of the men in Black Jacks army band. On the front there is a curious yen yang symbol painted in blue and gray, the symbol of his division. This Ben Miller guitar is, in a way, a time capsule of a time when there was truly hell on earth and it was there knee deep in the blood and the ugly. I did not understand what Ben’s daughter meant when she was walking out of the door of my shop, turned back and said, “My daddy always said that guitar had seen more blood than any other ever did and ever should.” She looked so sad as she shut the door. As I began to undo the dust covered case, it literally crumbled to pieces. As I gently removed the dust and began reading all the inscriptions, I slowly realized what was in my hands. She had also brought some old black and white photos of an American soldier, her father, with his guitar. And on the backs were dates and places this instrument had been during its life. I held it to me and gently plucked its ancient strings to listen to its voice. I could hardly hold it for very long and had to lay it down. Its mojo was so powerful I can’t really explain, but it affects you in a very emotional and real way. If any guitar has a story or a soul, it is this one. The last inscription Private Miller carved in the side bout simply says, “113th inf. Band. St. Nazaire-France homeward bound 4-30-19.” This Ben Miller guitar has only been publicly shown once and that was at the LA Guitar Show four years ago. I think with all the wars and fighting, anger and fear in the world today, it’s time other people have a chance to see it. Maybe its existence will make people think. It will be on display November 9th all day inside the Diamond City Community Center guarded by veterans of our local VFW and American Legion. Come listen to music, eat, drink and dance with us, and see a piece of the United States history that very few people even know exists. I broke out a bottle of 21 year old scotch my son gave me while I wrote this story. I hope I did Mr. Miller and his guitar justice.

Chasing just one more wish...

Chase Haggenmaker joins Dirty Lindsey live at Front Street Grill ---Sharpe Dunaway DARDANELLE • Chase Haggenmaker is a Make-A-Wish kid...OK he was when he was like 15. He is in need of a liver transplant. His wish was to meet Metallica. Metallica agreed. Sadly Metallica’s schedule and Chase’s didn’t match up so this never happened. Chase went to Disney World instead. That was years ago. Chase, 23, had another wish....As a guitarist with a medical condition it is VERY hard to put together a band, let alone maintain one. Chase has never known what it’s like to be on stage doing what he loves in front of appreciating fans. His mom, Amanda Kemp, contacted me back in April and asked if Dirty Lindsey would mind letting him come up for a couple of songs. He had seen Dirty Lindsey before and liked it a lot. Having absolutely no knowledge of his skill level, I didn’t hesitate with a “Not at all...Bring him on!” Chase worked hard with us in the practice room and let me just say, you couldn’t smack the smile off his face with a baseball bat. On Sept 21, a decent crowd showed up to Front Street Grill in Dardanelle for the show. Chase was so amped up that he couldn’t eat all day. During sound check we called him to the stage. There were a few people there already so we had him run through a song with us. He mentioned that he almost dropped his pick on the first note of the song but once he got to playing the nervousness subsided. The show started at 9 p.m. with Dauber Hill performing as an acoustic duo on this night, featuring Mike Velte and his son Alex Velte. They blew some minds with some tasty licks and incredible harmonies. Awesome!!!! Dirty Lindsey hit the stage about 10:20 or so and ran through our arsenal of mostly 80’s Rock Covers. Then the moment Chase had been waiting for arrived, we welcomed him to the stage after telling his story to the

crowd! He grabbed his 7-string electric guitar and for 3 songs was a member of our band. Listening to him play you would have thought he’d jammed with us forever. Chase freakin’ OWNED it. His mother video-taped his performance through tears of joy as he ripped through Motley Crue’s “Same Old Situation”, Ratt’s “Round And Round” and Def Leppards “Photograph”. For that moment Chase was not a guest in our band, we were guests in his. As any musician will tell you, you don’t play music to get rich. You play for moments like this when what you are playing really has purpose and meaning. Chase walked into Front Street Grill a Make-A-Wish kid and walked out a ROCKSTAR! ---SD

Leader of The Schwag reports from his federally-mandated vacation Peter, Hello from Yankton Federal Prison in beautiful South Dakota. This is Jimmy Tebeau from The Schwag reaching out to say hello. I want to thank you for sending me the recent copy of Nightflying. This was a quite pleasant and welcome surprise. The only way we can get newspapers is directly from the publisher. There are several people here from Arkansas that I let flip through the paper as well. We all enjoyed the photos and stories of what is happening with entertainment in the fine state of Arkansas. After we all read the paper I donated it to our library and they put it on their periodicals rack for anyone to read. The only newspapers the library gets are ones that are regularly donated by inmates who receive them, read them and then donate them. There are around 800 of us that live here at this institution. This place is a former college campus right in the middle of town. It still functions as a college but just for the inmates that live here. We all stay in the old dorms so it is sort of like being in a fraternity - with very strict rules and curfews. I have three hours of classes 5 days a week in the mornings. Then I work the rest of the day until 8:30 p.m. in the music department in the REC Center. I teach music, manage music and audio equipment, and help in the music CD library. I also play in several

bands here and perform for the other inmates on a regular basis. Being in the music department every day gives me regular access to a lot of instruments. Some days I practice and play music for up to six hours. My goal is to come out a better musician than when I came in. I now have plenty of “time” to work on my chops. There are actually a few really good musicians here at this particular institution. One band I play with here is into performing songs by Iron Maiden and Queensryche which involve a lot of chord changes and hot licks. Another group I play with lets me do most of the driving and we play a lot of Grateful Dead and classic rock. I’m just glad there are some people here to jam with. There are some interesting people in this prison. One guy is the film director from the movie Predator and several other blockbusters that got caught up in some Hollywood wire tap case involving a private investigator. I guess he got caught in a lie when questioned by the FBI on what he knew. There are also a couple unrelated guys here that were featured on the cable tv show American Greed for running multi-million dollar ponzi schemes. There are also a lot of drug related criminal inmates here. This facility is considered a federal camp and is just for low-risk non-violent offenders. Not a bad place cosider-

ing what I thought it was going to be. I do miss my family and playing shows all over the country. I am going to keep a positive attitude and make the best of my time. I really appreciate all your love and support. Hope all is well with you. Jimmy Tebeau PS: You can probably delete The Schwag name and phone number from

your Connections page for now. I will get you the new phone when I get out… PPS: Here is some prison artwork for you. This is copy of a pencil sketch one of the guys here drew of me… [Ed’s note - Jimmy’s address: James Tebeau 38712-044, FPC Yankton, P.O. Box 700, Durand Unit, Yankton, SD 57078]



I was asked, recently: “what is the most common cause of damage to stringed instruments?” Since there were several folks in the shop at the time, I pitched the question out to see what was the perception. I got a number of guesses: Broken necks or headstocks… No… Cracks… Nope... Electronic Failures… Wrong… It’s String-Related damage! The one thing that all stringed instruments have in common is… of course… strings. I’ve seen many instruments in my little shop and, as you might imagine, the severity of damage or distress varies greatly... But, by far, the most common culprit is… the use or abuse of strings. String Age Many folks are under the impression that the age of the strings are “incidental” to the health of their instrument. I have been told, many times, “I just though you changed strings only if they break”. The fact is… any stringed instrument can be damaged just by leaving the strings on too long. We all know that strings stretch when they are installed on an instrument. There is that, sometimes annoying, “honeymoon” period when you have to tune your instrument between EVERY song. Then comes the “sweet” time when the strings have reach a nominal elasticity point… usually around 3 to 5 hours of playing time. This is when you can go several songs without having to tune too much. What many musicians DON’T know is that there is a MAXIMUM point of elasticity (for steel stringed

instruments - around 4 – 6 weeks after installation) when the string effectively stops stretching. I say “effectively” because one of the interesting things about metallurgy is that all metal will keep stretching until it breaks… but for instrument strings, the stretching slows to a point that turning the tuning machine begins to add more tension than is released through string stretching. This causes the instrument to undergo tremendous stress. The neck begins to bow… the bridge begins to lift… the tuners begin to lean… the saddle will chip… and… (no laughing)… the stress can cause crushed nuts… Ouch! Lets talk about the damage caused starting with the headstock and working our way down. Headache When extreme pressure is applied to the Tuning machine shaft, it can begin to lean. This can exert enough pressure on the surrounding wood as to cause fractures. If the wood is dry enough, the headstock can actually split. Crushed nuts? The nut is one of two guides that keep the strings in place as they are stretched down the length of the neck. In recent years the nut has been designed to be one of the two intonation points. It can be made from a variety of materials: Bone, Tusq (man made bonelike substance) and plastic. As the string pressure increases beyond the instrument’s designed, from whatever material


the nut was made, begins to crack and chip. Sticking your Neck out The neck is especially vulnerable because of the thinning of wood at the nut. Over the years, builders have begun to slim-down neck profiles on many models of instruments. The reason for this is unclear. Perhaps manufacturer are trying to capture a younger (smaller-handed) market… or ,possibly, they are trying to save money on materials… maybe someone just input the wrong data into the CNC machine that cuts the neck profiles… but whatever the reason, many instrument necks are becoming more susceptible to breakage. String tension applies a continuing force to assist in the occasional shock to the instrument… just enough to find andy flaw in the wood and break the neck. The neck will inevitably bow under the stress of older strings. The unyielding force placed on an instrument, that is predominantly made of wood, can succumb to the pressure and if left for months or even years, the wood can become “formed”… so much so as to be permanently bowed… sometimes a truss rod adjustment cannot correct the issue. The Body of Evidence An acoustic instrument, as you might imagine, is more susceptible to the forces of string tension. The top can begin to bow and crack. I have seen the neck heel of several types of instruments actually pull away from the body. The bridge is one of the most vulnerable points. The bridge on an acoustic guitar, for example, is attached with glue. Some

manufacturers add a small bolts to reenforce the bond. If an adhesive is the only form of attachment, string tension is the most common cause of release of the bridge. Solid body instrument are not immune to string stress either. Tremolo mechanisms can be a saving grace but stop-tailed instruments can suffer cracking as well as other unpleasant effects. I have seen severe cases of solid body guitars actually bowing from old strings… of course ALL of these were exposed to extreme temperatures and humidity. The solution The easiest solution to the afore mentioned maladies… Change your strings! Even if you do not strum the instrument… even once… Change your strings at least once per quarter for most instruments. I know what you’re thinking… there are exceptions… basses can go 6 months… Nylon string instruments can go up to a year… the point is: Change your strings. You can save yourself a lot of headache and heartache in the long run. If you have suggestions for future articles or have a fretted instrument in need of repair, Please feel free to call me at 501-223-FRET (6368), email: or visit Little Rock Frets - Located at 10020 N.

---Bob Boyd The Boyd Music Center Saga: Part 2 Last month I talked about the origins of Boyd Music Center, from March 1962 to the Summer of 1964, when we moved into a brand new building at 5702 West 12th Street. Something very important happened that Summer. Now, we call it the “British Invasion” or the “Beatle Revolution.” Let me tell you about it. The Beatles band from Liverpool, England made their first appearance in the United States that Summer. Now I’m looking back and remembering. Many of you weren’t born yet in 1964, or were too young to remember. Here’s what happened. I had just moved into our new Boyd Music Center building and was in the process of becoming a dealer for all the major brands of guitars, amplifiers and drums. We had 7 soundproof private studios up and going and were rapidly filling them all with teachers and students. Suddenly the Beatles landed, and it seemed like every teenager in town wanted to learn to play the guitar or bass or drums, and we were glad to provide the teachers and the instruments. Suddenly young folks had music of their own; not the music of piano lessons or school band instrument lessons of their moms and dad, but their very own music! Almost overnight, every neighborhood had its own “garage band,” here in Little Rock and North Little Rock, but in every city in the U.S. and perhaps the world. And the music was fresh, new and innovative and original. For a decade we had been listening to 3-chord blues, brought about by the ‘Elvis Era,’ 1954-1964. The Beatles - Paul, John, George and Ringo - wrote their own original songs and they had interesting and enjoyable chord changes and melodies. At one point in time, over half the tunes in Billboard magazine’s ‘Top 100 Tunes’ were written and played by the Beatles. Then came the “me too” bands, the Rolling Stones, the Doors, and dozens of other bands. Little Rock was no exception; the “Romans,” the “Merging Traffic,” the “Dutch Masters” the “Coachmen,” the “Light Brigade,” and a dozen other fine professional rock bands flourished. In November 1999, a symposium was held at the Little Rock Main Library to discuss these bands and this phenomenon; I was honored to be a part of it as well as many members of those bands. Today, there are collections of their recordings you can buy or hear on You Tube. My old friend Bob Lincoln took many photos that day and has published a link on the old “Boyd Music Center” website; if you’d like to check it all out. Meanwhile back at the ranch, I had all major brands of guitars, amps, basses and drum outfits. We had a “Drum-O-Rama” event on our front parking lot, featuring about 25 drum outfits. We had a stage with “bands on the roof” for special occasions, and all through one Summer, on our indoor bandstand, we had a different local rock band every Tuesday night. It all started (or flourished dramatically) because of the Beatles. I don’t believe the “musicologist historians” have really recognized what happened. Today many, perhaps most, Beatle tunes are considered popular standard songs. Even “retro” bands, like my “Bob Boyd Sounds” band, play them as a part of their repertoire. Paul McCartney, still going strong, recently received, at the White House, the “Gershwin Award” for being the most successful songwriter OF ALL TIME. Quite an honor, considering he has been more successful than Irving Berlin, George Gershwin and Cole Porter! NEXT MONTH: THE “FOLK MUSIC ERA” AND BOYD MUSIC’S FIRST EXPANSION

The new D’Angelico Excel

---Steve Evans I think the new D’Angelico Excel is one of the coolest things we have had for sale in the 38 year history of Jacksonville Guitar Center. Salesman Bobby Appleby says “it’s THE coolest thing we’ve ever had for sale.” Bobby likes it as a jazz guitar, although I bought one to get that “western swing” look in my “Bluegrass Bombers” band. Bobby and I both like the high quality at a low price. The original Excels from the 1940’s and 1950’s can sell for $58,000.00 as collector’s items, but this new Korean-made reproduction sells for $1,149.00 and comes with a hardshell case. The D’Angelico Excel is available in natural or sunburst and either finish looks really good. Considering they are both the same price, I chose natural. Do you realize that some companies charge extra for natural? The up-charge for a natural finish on a new Gibson jazz guitar is $500.00! The D’Angelico comes with a traditional ebony bridge intonated for jazz music with a wound G string. I like to use an unwound G so I put a gold-plated Gibson Tune-O-Matic bridge on my guitar, and it fit perfectly atop the D’Angelico ebony base. If you have never heard of D’Angelico guitars, I bet you have at least seen a picture of one. The Mel Bay popular guitar method books have had a D’Angelico on the cover for as long as I can remember. John D’Angelico started his luthier training at the age of nine as an apprentice helping build violins and mandolins at a shop owned by his granduncle, Raphael Ciani. When he was 27 years old, D’Angelico opened his own shop to make guitars. The year was 1932, the place was New York City. From D’Angelico’s first guitar in 1932 until his death in 1964, John D’Angelico made 1,164 guitars, each one considered a masterpiece in today’s vintage guitar market. Standard features on the original D’Angelico guitars included a hand-carved spruce top and carved maple back, maple sides and neck, ebony fingerboard, and mother-of-pearl inlays. D’Angelico made several models and one-of-a-kinds, but his most popular guitars proved to be the “New Yorker” and “Excel” models. Both were very large jazz guitars. The New Yorker was 18” and the Excel 17” wide at the lower bout. Many great guitar players have played D’Angelico guitars including Johnny Smith, Mary Kaye, Bucky Pizzarelli, Billy Bauer, and many more. Chet Atkins even played a D’Angelico up until he became a Gretsch endorser in 1955. The new 2013 D’Angelico Excel shown in the accompanying photos is 17” wide at the lower bout and is 3” deep. It features a spruce top with flame maple back and sides. These woods are not hand-carved like the originals, but are laminated like a Gibson ES-175. The neck is made of maple with an ebony fingerboard and comes with Grover Imperial tuners. All metal parts are gold-plated including the D’Angelico engraved “stairstep” tailpiece, the tuning machines, and the “Johnny Smith-style” mini-humbucking pickup. The pickup was designed by Kent Armstrong (son of guitar designer, Dan Armstrong) and is a “floating” pickup which means it does not touch the top of the guitar and does not affect the acoustic qualities of the guitar. Besides the absolute beauty of the new Excel, it plays and sounds great! To see one in person, drop by Jacksonville Guitar Center, in Jacksonville. For information about the entire line of D’Angelico guitars go to or to see a short video of Bobby Appleby demonstrating the D’Angelico Excel (model #EXL-1), go to www. and use search words “Nightflying D’Angelico.”

It is often a person's mouth broke his nose...



The genie said “Your wish is my command.“ and poof the man turned into a toilet... If you drink too much alcohol you are an alcoholic. If you drink too much Fanta, does that make you Fantastic? I‘m not an alcoholic - alcoholics go to meetings. I‘m a drunk, we go to parties... You say alcoholic, I‘ll say alcohol enthusiast…

Divine intercession

As the story goes, the musician was down on his knees begging God for help: “Oh, God you gotta help me get this gig at the House of Blues. It means everything to me. If I don’t get this gig at the House of Blues, I will have to quit my career as a musician and take that office job. And you know how I HATE computers! Oh God, if you can just get me this one show at the House of Blues, I promise I’ll go to church every Sunday, stop cheatin’ on my wife and give up drugs...I promise Lord. Just then the phone rang and his agent informed him that the HOB gig is not going to happen. However, he got him booked at the Hollywood Bowl, opening for a benefit concert for diabetes, featuring Tom Petty, John Mellencamp and Sheryl Crow! The musician quickly composed himself and said, “…never mind God, I just got a much better gig, thanks anyway…” Q.: What do you call a person who plays the viola? A.: A violator... Did you hear about the female opera singer who had quite a range at the lower end of the scale. She was known as the deep C diva... Q.: What‘s the difference between a saxophone and a husband? A.: A saxophone makes sound when you blow it... Madonna is to music as Wonder is to bread: light, fluffy, filled with air and totally tasteless... The Pentagon announced today the formation of a new 500 man elite fighting unit called the US REDNECK SPECIAL FORCES (USRSF). These Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Tennessee, Louisiana, Texas and West Virginia boys will be dropped into the desert and will be given the following facts about Terrorists: 1. The season opened today. 2. There is no limit. 3. They taste just like chicken. 4. They don‘t like beer, pickups, country music or Jesus. 5. They are DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE for the death of Dale Earnhardt. This mess in the middle east should be over within a week… Q.: What‘s the difference between a banjo and a cattle grid? A.: You drive slowly over the cattle grid... A guy walks into a bar with an octopus. He sits the octopus down on a stool and tells everyone in the bar that this is a very talented octopus. He can play any musical instrument in the world. He hears everyone in the crowd laughing at him, calling him an idiot, etc. So he says that he will wager $50 to anyone who has an instrument that the octopus can‘t play. A guy walks up with a guitar and sets it beside the octopus. The octopus starts playing better than Jimi Hendrix, just rippin‘ it up. So the man pays his $50. Another guy walks up with a trumpet. The octopus plays the trumpet better than Dizzie Gillespie. So the man pays his $50. Then a Scotsman walks up with bagpipes. He sits them down and the octopus fumbles with it for a minute and sits it down with a confused look. “Ha!“ the Scot says. “Can‘t you play it?“ The octopus looks up at him and says, “Play it? I‘m going to screw it as soon as I figure out how to get its pajamas off…“ A newlywed redneck couple arrive at their hotel to begin their honeymoon. The manager greets them and says “I see you‘re newlyweds! ... I can give you the Bridal…“ to which the husband replies “No thanks, I‘ll just hold onto her ears until she gets the hang of it…“ In the men‘s bathroom, an accountant, a lawyer and a cowboy were standing side-by-side using the urinal. The accountant finished, zipped up and started washing and literally scrubbing his hands...clear up to his elbows...he used 20 paper towels before he finished. He turned to the other two men and commented, “I graduated from the University of Michigan and they taught us to be clean.“ The lawyer finished, zipped up and quickly wet the tips of his fingers, grabbed one paper towel and commented, “I graduated from the University of California and they taught us to be environmentally conscious.“ The cowboy zipped up and as he was walking out the door said, “I graduated from Texas Tech University and they taught us not to piss on our hands…” A man walking on a beach say a bottle, picked it up, rubbed it, and poof a genie came out and said “Master I will give you two wishes.“ The man thought for a while and said “I wish I could be hard all the time and get all the ass I want.“

A man was walking through a rather seedy section of town, when a bum walked up to him and asked the man for two dollars. The man asked, “Will you buy booze?“ The bum replied, “No.“ Then the man asked, “Will you gamble it away?“ The bum said, “No.“ Then the man asked the bum, “Will you come home with me so my wife can see what happens to a man who doesn‘t drink or gamble?“ A large woman, wearing a sleeveless sun dress, walked into a bar in London. She raised her right arm, revealing a huge, hairy armpit as she pointed to all the people sitting at the bar and asked, “What man here will buy a lady a drink?“ The bar went silent as the patrons tried to ignore her. But down at the end of the bar, an owly-eyed drunk slammed his hand down on the counter and bellowed, “Give the ballerina a drink!” The bartender poured the drink and the woman chugged it down. She turned to the patrons and again pointed around at all of them, revealing the same hairy armpit, and asked, “What man here will buy a lady a drink?“ Once again, the same little drunk slapped his money down on the bar and said, “Give the ballerina another drink!” The bartender approached the little drunk and said, “I say, old chap, it‘s your business if you want to buy the lady a drink, but why do you keep calling her the ballerina?“ “As far as I‘m concerned,“ the drunk replied, “any woman who can lift her leg that high has got to be a ballerina…”

Bragging rights

Four Catholic men and a Catholic woman were having coffee when one of the Catholic men tells his friends, “My son is a priest, when he walks into a room, everyone calls him ‘Father‘.“ The second Catholic man chirps, “My son is a Bishop. When he walks into a room people call him ‘Your Grace‘.“ The third Catholic gent says, “My son is a Cardinal. When he enters a room everyone says ‘Your Eminence‘.“ The fourth Catholic man then says, “My son is the Pope. When he walks into a room people call him ‘Your Holiness‘.“ Since the lone Catholic woman was sipping her coffee in silence, the four men give her a subtle, “Well....?“ She proudly replies, “I have a daughter, slim, tall, 38D breasts, 24“ waist and 34“ hips. When she walks into a room, people say, “Oh - My - God…“ A man doing market research for Vaseline contacted a young mother of three and asked: “Have you ever used our product?“ She says, “Yes. My husband and I use it all the time.“ “And if you don‘t mind me asking, what do you use it for?“ “We use it for sex.“ The researcher was a little surprised; “Usually people lie say that they use it on a child‘s bicycle chain or to help with a gate hinge. But, in fact, we know that most people do use it for sex. I admire you for your honesty. Since you‘ve been frank so far, can you tell me exactly how you use it for sex?“ The woman says, “I don‘t mind telling you at all... We put it on the door knob to keep the kids out.…’” A woman went to a doctor and said, “doctor, I have a problem. every time I sneeze I have an orgasm.“ The doctor said “oh really, what have you been doing for it?” The woman replied, “snorting pepper...“ You‘re Just Jealous Because The Voices Are Talking To Me

Nightflying Fruitcake Recipe Just in time for the holidays You‘ll need the following: A cup of water, a cup of sugar, four large brown eggs, two cups of dried fruit, a teaspoon of salt, a cup of brown sugar, lemon juice, nuts, and a bottle of whiskey.

Best of Burger (1949 - 1998)

St. Gypsy Woman

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Not since the beginning of time has the world known a group of individuals so...ept at being inept...Wherever you might see lopsided architecture...Wherever you see baseball teams with ten players on the field...Wherever you see a football coach send a one-legged kicking specialist into the game, look no further...for in these places you will find the lowly Aries.......

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) The sign identified by the bull....So be it...for they are the most full of it. The Taurus is often automatically disqualified from liars contests, on the grounds that contestants be strictly amateurs...unfortunately, the trait which might make another person, e.g. a renowned writer of great fiction is nothing more than a dead giveaway revealing the Taurus as one whose ego truly runneth over…

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Words can but poorly describe the wonder of those blessed to be Gemini...fair of face and temper are they...gracious in all things....Honor and a sense of fair play are penultimate to an unquestioned, faultlessly lived life of unerring humility. My God! cried all the lesser signs, ‘Tis woeful beyond measure to fall short of the glory that is Gemini...oh woe and alas, alack, and yuk…

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Thou much has been said about those unfortunates whose ill favor it is to fall under Cancerian sway...let us now count the positive attributes of the Cancer: 1. Their sign’s name is easy to spell. 2. No one waits in line at the office of “Change Your Sign of the Zodiac, Legally” place. No one masquerades as a Cancer except to get sympathy…

“...when we remember that we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained...” ---Mark Twain



LEO (July 23-August 22) It is said that those born under the Leonion banner have a remarkable inborn ability to repulse fleas, crabs, ear-mites, and other common body parasites, owing to a sticky and malodorous excretion which also enables the Leo to identify those of his/her ilk at 500 yards, though they possess only an average sense of smell…

VIRGO (August 23-September 22) The Virgo invariably sees himself (herself) as God’s gift to the opposite sex. Their incessant banter, invariably about themselves, sends all members of both genders scurrying to any place away from the Virgo. When asked to identify his most positive quality, the Virgo always will stutter and spit and mumble and look confused. For the self-involved Virgo this question alone leaves him/her speechless for once in his/her life, for alas, the Virgo can never pick just one...

LIBRA (September 23-October 22) It is the Libra who most often says “I don’t care if Haley’s Comet only comes around every zillion years I’ve got to get home in time for ‘Pee Wee’s Fun House’ or I’ll break out in hives.” Ah yes, the Libra is widely known for his or her lack of maturity and failure to grasp a reasonable world view. e.g. ‘You guys can keep up with Operation Desert Shield if you want to; I’m goin’ to go get some gas in my car and ride around....That stuff’s got nothing to do with me…”

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21) “Shake it but don’t break it cries the Scorpio.... “Wrap it up and I’ll take it!” wails the Scorpio at the class reunion dance. But alas, the Scorpio is just as big a geek at the dance now as he was in high school and problem for the Scorpio, master of self-deception. They also comb their remaining hair back around and over their bald spots while cleverly declaring “At least I’ve still got my hair.” But the ever-blowing wind reveals the lie...or the truth...poor deluded Scorpio...

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21) The Sagittarius punches every button going up after the elevator reaches his floor. He puts a tack in your hair. He has a joy-buzzer in his hand and a dribble-glass on the table...but try as he will, the Sagittarius is not funny. Witness the fact that he laughs alone at these sophomoric pranks.[The Sag is also not very smart, for though he is often beaten severely and ostracized by his fellows, he continues with his lame attempts to gain approval, never once recognizing that having one’s ass beaten regularly results only in having a perpetually sore ass and is never considered a sign of approval…

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19) Rhymes with scorn, mourn, forlorn, ill-born, care-worn, nose like a herald horn. Try as we may, not one redeeming quality presents itself when the Capricorn comes into consideration. In fact it is said that in days of old, the morning breath of a Capricorn caused stuttering and palsy in Mormons and Seventh Day Adventists…

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18) George Washington was not an Aquarius; neither was Abe Lincoln or Thomas Jefferson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Albert Shweitzer, or Sister Theresa. In fact, nobody that is anybody or ever did anything was an Aquarian...I’ll tell you who was though: Lil Abner, Billy the Kid, Judas Iscariot, John Wilkes Booth, Attilla the Hun, Vlad the Impaler, the Marquis de Sade, Lizzy Borden...all those good folks were Aquarians and so are you…

PISCES (February 19-March 20) Last but not least comes Pisces, the sign responsible for the saying “There’s something fishy in Finland.” For it was the Piscean elders of those frozen lands who fostered the frigid female. Not all Piscean women are frigid though, just the pretty ones, who actually are very few and far between…
